Thought we needed one on here! - come on you 'Stenders fans, comedy fans, Goughie fans, this is the new pretender to the joker's crown.

Massively great value tickets to be galavanting to victory right now, though they are starting to go the right direction, get on before more realise!

That joke will go thin

All considered Tuffers constitutes the better value imo

No way - tickets far too expensive on that one, and won't run the course eventually...

Just had to highlight this one, especially seen as Rav has already had (half) a rollercoaster on here - one vanquished already, with a laugh! ;)

After his cha cha last week, I was looking forward to seeing Ricky this week and he didn't disappoint Couldn't wipe the smile off my face for a good hour afterwards - his energy is so infectious.


Couldn't think of a better way to summarise this one, than from a DS fan's post above - I'll use it as the thread Motto!

I still don't know who Rav is, and will never find out now.

I had to check who RG was too. Thought it was Beeeeee-anka's other half. But didn't he already fail at this **?

I am clued up now. Except I don't know who Laila is yet

Laila and Anton - QS - 8 8 7 7 = 30

RickyG and Erin - Paso - 7 7 8 7 = 29

FatNat and Vinthent - Paso - 6 7 8 7 = 28

Lynda and Darren - Paso - 5 7 7 6 = 25

THe Wounded Cat and The Kat - QS - 5 6 6 7 = 24

Chris and Ola - QS - 5 6 6 6 = 23

Craig and Flavia - QS - 4 6 6 5 = 21

Rav and Aliona - QS - 3 6 5 6 = 20
Jo and Brendan - Paso - 3 6 6 5 = 20

Joe and Kristina - PAso - 3 5 6 5 = 19




How can he be a bigger price than the wounded cat or Chris??? Grab the value, it's pretty cheap to cover him anyway surely George!?

He is a backable price for sure. I have already backed him @33's tho and that's plenty. As the numbers dwindle he is at risk of dropping into the bottom two and the judges will likely save the dancer that has the best technical ability. He should be around the same price as Tufnell and they should be around 20's.
By:

When: 04 Oct 09 10:36
Cider, I don't think he'll drop to bottom 2 personally, as he's actually a pretty decent dancer but more to the point I think he could be potentially topping the public vote (or close) most weeks.
By:
stu
When: 04 Oct 09 10:37
If he does then there's a risk of course - but he's well over 30/1 so risk is pretty much priced in!

What I suggested during the week and was also suggested last night that the balance between looking stupid or being entertaining is a fine one for what Ricky G does. The Paso maybe suited to that type of routine? but there's gonna come a week where he goes over the top and annoys the judges. Probably.
By:
stu
When: 04 Oct 09 11:23
Possibly, but like I said, I think he's actually a fairly decent dancer anyway, and at the very least the risk is well priced in too. Plus, I think the public vote could save him even on a sticky week. I'm sure there isn't such a thing as a 30/1 shot that doesn't have some risk attached to it.

Don't fret stu, he is covered. All eyes on xf now.

Clearly stu, I'm simply attempting to explain the price! As above, I think he is too big.
By:

Glad of the agreement fellas - nice to see that sense is finally returning to the market too, as Chris' price starts to get closer, how he was ever around 9/1 is a flamin mystery, yet still he maintains a lower price despite a poor score this week - crazy!

40+ after Saturdays show was the specials equivalent of finding money in the street.
Astonishing price for a pretty competent dancer who can perform hugely entertaining routines as he did on saturday and the week before.

Karen Hardy is on.

Professional dancer Karen Hardy has tipped Ricky Groves to surprise viewers on this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Hardy, who won the show in 2006 with Mark Ramprakash, claimed that viewers would be wrong to presume that the ex-EastEnders star was going to be "the clown" of the series.

Groves and Erin Boag scored 29 points on Saturday for their Paso Doble, with judge Bruno Tonioli describing him as being like "a bull in mating season".

"Erin chose her choreography well. He had to match her arms, he knows his counts... there were a lot of hard moves," Hardy told It Takes Two. "There's lots of hard points in that routine. Those putting Ricky as the clown, watch out!

"He may be giving 100%, but he is also learning. In these early days, Erin will be ticking boxes. Those contestants, like with Rav [Wilding], who just thought we've got a gorgeous guy here, let's just put him out there to pick up points - you can't do that."

She added: "Erin has been very clever, he's already learning how to match arms, he's already feeling confident on his own - big ticks, early days."

I thought Phil Turnell is suppose to be the clown act, or will he split the votes with Ricky.

I don't think they appeal in the same way personally. There is a bit of comedy to both, for sure, but I personally feel Rickey has a more 'underdog' status here, plus I've always considered he was a better dancer than Tuffers.
